Klark Teknik DN32-LIVE

The DN32-LIVE SD/SDHC and USB 2.0 Expansion Module for Midas M32 and Behringer X32 mixers provides 32-channel bidirectional audio I/O via USB 2.0 for both live performance and studio recording, plus comprehensive remote operation of your DAW via HUI/Mackie Control emulation. Dual SD/SDHC slots allow fully independent recording/playback of up to 32 channels of uncompressed WAV files in consistent sessions – to capacity of the SD cards. Now even without a computer, you can capture multichannel live or session tracks, perform virtual sound checks, add backing tracks, set and manipulate markers, and enjoy full remote operation via PC, Android* or iPad* apps, and X-TOUCH control surfaces.

Channel Strip

The M32R LIVE Channel Strip puts the most important channel processing parameters into one section so that no matter which channel you are working on, the controls are always the same.

This highly-efficient layout stems from Midas decades of console design and input from our users. Optimized control illumination ensures a clear indication of levels or status from any viewing angle.

Illuminated rotary encoders and switches give you control of preamp settings, frequency shelving, dual dynamics sections, as well as multi-mode fully parametric EQ, bus sends, main, mono and stereo panning.
5″ Main Display

M32R LIVE’s 5″ day-viewable color TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) display shows the setting parameters you need when you need them.

Selected for its high-contrast performance and outdoor visibility, TFT is ideal for concert and open air festival venues. Flanked by high-precision, context-sensitive tactile encoders, the screen comes to life and immediately reports in high definition all adjustments applied to a wide range of parameters.

Sends On Fader

M32R LIVE brings the convenience of digital mixing to your Aux and output bus mixes too, thanks to its integrated Sends on Fader feature. This incredible function allows you to build powerful, dedicated sub-mixes for monitor, secondary zone feeds, and much more – all without affecting the front of house mix or levels.

The M32R LIVE allows you to send your choice of signals to any Aux or output bus and then dial in the perfect mix via the channel faders.

DCA Groups

Across the M32R LIVE you’ll find 11 strategically placed View buttons associated with various functions. These buttons enable immediate access to information about that specific function.

For instance, if you press the View button in the Equaliser section, information for that channel’s EQ is instantly shown on the main display, providing in-depth editing of all related parameters.

“Acoustic Integration” – the Live Sound Revolution

Legendary 40-year old British company Turbosound, famous for producing some of the world’s best speaker systems, have teamed up with Midas to seamlessly integrate mixer and speaker systems. We call it “Acoustic Integration”.

The M32R LIVE’s ULTRANET bus allows streaming up to 16 channels of pristine digital audio to an array of Turbosound iQ speakers – all on a single CAT5 cable, along with control data to set sound presets remotely.

Furthermore, iQ Series loudspeakers feature “True Physical Modelling” of some of the most popular speakers, which can be easily remote controlled via the M32R LIVE, allowing the sound engineer to apply different speaker models in real time from the comfort of the mixing desk.

“Acoustic Integration” is the next live sound revolution.

100-Band RTA for all Channel/Bus EQs

The M32R LIVE includes a 100-band Real Time Analyser (RTA) with full bar and spectrograph views on the M32-EDIT control application. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time – capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.

You can switch between the large RTA view to display any available signal at full screen resolution, or the combined view, which displays the RTA view above each of the channel and bus EQ curves.

This feature lets you see the results of your filtering choices in the audio spectrum directly. Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQs in the FX rack.

You Are Connected

Each M32R LIVE comes loaded with all of the connectivity, I/O and functionality you need, right out of the box – but it doesn’t end there. Onboard USB 2.0 connectivity delivers a full 32 x 32 channels of audio and MIDI to your DAW. Integrated multi-channel digital audio interfaces connect to remote stage boxes and/or the P16 Personal Monitor System. Native Ethernet control enables remote operation by computer, iPad or iPhone over a wired or wireless network, across the room – or across the planet!

Dual AES50 network ports featuring Klark Teknik SuperMAC technology support up to 96 inputs and 96 outputs over shielded (STP) CAT5 cable, allowing remote stage boxes and sharing signals among several connected M32R LIVEs and other Midas, Klark Teknik and AES50-equipped products.

On-board ULTRANET provides a 16-channel digital mix direct to P16 Personal Monitor Mixers, without added hardware, cost or latency.

Ethernet, USB and MIDI are all standard features on M32R LIVE.

 

What are AES50 and SuperMAC?

AES50 simultaneously provides high channel counts, extremely low and deterministic latencies, accurate phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection, network redundancy, with simple deployment and ease of use to meet the needs of the live performance industry.

This unique combination also benefits both live and studio recording applications, as well as post-production, broadcasting and audio routing infrastructure. SuperMAC is a proprietary implementation of AES50 owned by Klark Teknik. Originally developed by Sony Pro-Audio Labs in Oxford, UK, it forms the basis of the Audio Engineering Society’s AES50 open standard for digital audio networking – High Resolution Multi-channel Audio Interconnection (HRMAI), as published by the Audio Engineering Society, Inc.

  • 48 bidirectional audio channels @ 48 kHz over Neutrik etherCON-terminated shielded (STP) CAT5 cable (max. length 100 meters / 328 feet)
  • Single cable duplex interconnection for audio and sample clocks
  • Ethernet physical layer audio data transmission
  • High channel count and ultra-low deterministic latency (2×3 samples = 1/8 ms per node)
  • Accurate phase-aligned clock distribution
  • Comprehensive error detection and management
  • Provision for redundant networking
  • Minimal configuration – total ease of deployment and use
  • Ethernet TCP/IP protocol-compatible auxiliary data channel

 

Real-Time Recording

A versatile powerhouse of a live console, the M32R LIVE also provides robust studio functionality. Record and play back up to 32 tracks which run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 operating systems or Mac computers via integrated USB 2.0 connectivity. M32R LIVE supports both 44.1 and 48 kHz sample rates at 24-BIt, allowing you to record up to 32 tracks of live audio directly to your computer for mixing down later. Take advantage of M32R LIVE’s built-in FX engines to augment your DAW’s plug-in collection, or to free up valuable computer resources.

M32R LIVE’s recall capability makes it easy for both project and professional studio engineers to stay organised by storing projects as scenes, either internally or externally on a USB stick.

 

Optional Expansion Cards

The M32R LIVE’s expansion slot provides flexible and expandable connectivity for many different applications. A wide array of Klark Teknik expansion cards can easily be used in place of the pre-installed DN32-USB card to release the power of M32R LIVE into existing MADI*, Dante* and ADAT networks. Fully compatible with these widely available audio protocols, the M32R LIVE delivers a seamless integration in digital live sound, recording and broadcast environments.

DAW Ready-MIDI Plus Mackie Control* & HUI* Protocols

Thanks to its onboard MIDI ports, the M32R LIVE console can function as a high-level, large-format control surface, similar to Mackie Control and HUI, and integrates seamlessly with most popular DAW platforms. M32R LIVE’s motorised faders can be used to send position information to the onscreen DAW faders, while each bus’ mute and solo buttons control their onscreen counterparts. This powerful control surface relationship, which functions bidirectionally between the M32R LIVE and your DAW, allows you to work more quickly and attend to the finer nuances of the overall mix. After all, mixing with your hands puts you in “touch” with your project, providing a level of finesse that can mean the difference between a good recording session – and a work of art! Or, would you rather use a mouse?
